(Image credit: Christine Han)

There are many things I prefer to do solo: grocery shopping, cooking, and cleaning. It's faster and more efficient, yes, but it also offers a sort of meditative break from my regular job, which involves sitting at a desk all day long. One might argue there is a good reason I'm single!

But there are limitations to my single status. From recipes (almost always designed to serve four to six) to loaves of bread (why are they so big?), I inevitably end up eating the same thing until I'm bored to tears, sticking it in the freezer and forgetting about it, or feeding it to my dog.

This is especially true when it comes to meat. That family pack of chicken thighs? Great if you are feeding a family; not so great if you are feeding one. Until recently, I was basically an at-home vegetarian. Until recently, I had definitely never cooked a steak for myself.

Satisfy Your Cured Meat Cravings with Carnivore Club — Product Review

Item: Carnivore Club Cured Meat Subscription
Price: $50 per box
Overall Impression: This is a great way to sample artisan cured meats from across the country.

Living in Europe exposed me to all the wonderful delights of cured meats, where they were not only easy to find, but usually fairly inexpensive. Back here in the States, more and more artisan producers are cropping up, but it's hard to sample a wide variety of them since they usually aren't as widely distributed as cheeses.

Carnivore Club, a monthly cured meat subscription, promises to "Satisfy Your Inner Carnivore" with handcrafted meats, so I gave it a try!
